A guidebook to cycling in SE Scotland and NE England in the Northumberland National Park and the Southern Uplands. The Scottish Borders and Northumberland rank among the finest and most scenic parts of Britain, and this guide brings you detailed maps and descriptions of 40 original cycle routes in the area, varying in length from 15 to well over 40 miles. Most have off-road sections, but there is a wide variety, and if you enjoy cycling then you should be able to find something here to suit your tastes. Some of the routes are content to wander along leafy lanes and through quiet villages, while others are more demanding and will take you to wild and remote hills and mountains. The coastline varies from craggy cliffs, like those found at St Abbs Head, to the miles of golden sand that are Druridge Bay. Inland, the coastal plains give way to upland areas such as the Lammermuirs, the Southern Uplands, the Cheviots and the Pennines. In the Northumberland Park you can often cycle all day and seldom see a soul. The Southern Uplands has its own unique blend of both isolation and charm in equal measure.
